ITS FINALLY DONE WOOOOOO!!!! Ive been saving for this computer since Black Friday and finally finished it in Feb. It was so hard to walk into my room everyday and just see a stack of parts that I could do nothing with but we did it! Bubbles is the name of my cat(pictured) and she inspired the whole theme of my setup(shes still alive don't worry). This is actually my 2nd build and this one was quite a bit more complicated than my last. I also made a video about the build on my youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSVlasJ7VOk
Why Bubbles for the name?
I moved to Texas with my family(Mom and Brother) around Elementary school when I was in the
5th grade. We got our 1st pet around the time of me attending middle school.
Her name was Angel(cat) and she really took a liking to my brother and mom. Of
course being the younger brother I always wanted whatever my brother had so I was pretty jealous.
Around 7th grade, my family plans a trip to go to Hurricane Harbor but before we leave we need to make a stop at Walmart. My brother and myself both hyped about the whole thing run up to the front of the Walmart and see a girl with a box. Her sign says"Free Kittens" and when we look inside the box , theirs a single white kitten with 2 black spots on her head. It was almost like fate and I didn't want to pass this opportunity up so I turned on the puppy eyes and proceeded to beg my mom if we could get the cat. Clearly my persuasion skills are equal to the levels of Batman because I convinced her to say yes. She gave us an alternative which was if we get the cat then we cant do the water park. Safe to say we didn't make it to the water but ended up going to the movies instead.
After some CSI investigation we find out that she is a....well she. She took me to faster than peanut butter takes to jelly. Now this was around the time that Power Puff Girls(The good one) was on tv and was really popular so of course I named her Bubbles. Fast forward through plenty of awesome years with her to my senior year in high school. Around this time all my friends are either moving, going to college, or getting married. I didn't have to many plans after graduating and suddenly things became very lonesome. My immediate group of friends no longer had time to skate or play gears of war/Halo with me and I was having trouble figuring out what to do with myself.
I end up getting a job at a pet store with Cruella de Vil as my boss and hate every second of it. Eventually I quit that job and end up at a Kroger which was no better than cleaning up dog piss for almost 6 hours straight. The best part of both of those jobs was clocking out and going home to my cat Bubbles. She would always be the 1st to great me with a meow when I'd unlock my front door. Then she would follow me into my room and sit on my lap while I'd practice fighting games or attempt to make music. I never really understood how much I appreciated Bubbles til recently.She consistently managed to put a smile on my face everyday. Suddenly everything I started to own was B & W and Bubbles is the reason why these colors bring me so much joy. I know to most these colors are bland but these colors remind me to keep going.
PC part picker is the real hero here. Shout outs to all of you for posting your awesome builds and giving me inspiration. I'm still not done with this setup as a whole and will be updating it soon-ish so I'll be sure to post up when that happens. Thanks for stopping by and have a good week =D.
Went AMD for my 1st build and wanted to go all out with this one so I figured I'd spend the extra money to get the I7. Def made the right choice here.
Zero issues with it so far and it keeps my computer cool. Extremely easy to install. Might replace with the NZXT Kraken later down the line.
Does everything I need it to do and the black Friday deal I got makes it even better.
Its ram and its white....not much to say here. Looking to purchase 2 more sticks to accompany these 2.
Good lord this thing is fast. This is my 1st time using an SSD for storage and now im looking to grab 2 more.
Finally I can play minesweeper and solitaire at max settings!
Best case Ive built in so far. Cable management made easy. 10/10 would recommend.
So much power I don't know what do with it all. If i ever build another computer I'll be sure to grab another one of these bad boys.
I guess you could say.... I'm a fan =P.
Was really excited to find a 2ms response time white gaming monitor for such a low price that I purchased 2. Speakers are decent. The hard part will be finding a 4k white gaming monitor to hang with these guys.
Fits my hand perfectly. The only thing I had a problem with was the weight(which you can adjust) but that didn't take long to get use to.
Great entry level headphones for a great price.
It keeps my computer..... "lit" >.> . Very user friendly and love the remote.
